From the island that brought you the piña colada, could you expect anything short of fabulous for Puerto Rico's other refreshing drinks? Natural and exotic fruits grow year round in Puerto Rico's lush tropical habitat. Coconuts galore, homemade fruity ice cream frappes and so much more. Here are Puerto Rico's best smoothies, snow cones, just-roasted coffee, and all sorts of local sips.

In a bright-orange cart off the main 413 Highway in Rincon, fresh juices and fruit smoothies are being poured into mason jars for the drinking. The newly opened Carta Buena is a hot spot for a healthy boost. Smoothies, juices, and even coffee are...

Campamento Piñones, Cangrejo Arriba, Loíza, Puerto Rico

Coco frios are sold on every corner during the high season (fall and winter) in Puerto Rico. Cold, fresh coconut water is the lifeblood of island living. Literally, if you were ever stranded on an island, you could sustain yourself on what's...

The sun can shine relentlessly in Puerto Rico, but you can beat the heat with cool sweets. If you’re staying in town, your best bet is a piragua (shaved ice with a syrup of your choice) from a plaza vendor's cart. But if you’re escaping the city...

Rincón, 00602, Puerto Rico
A unique cafe for locals and tourists, BD Cafe serves up delicious smoothies, açai bowls, and coffees, with a particular love for bananas! My favorites are the Thai iced tea (the only one in Rincon besides Ode to Elephants' Thai iced tea martini),...

Cacao beans’ scientific name is theobrama cacao, which translates into “drink of the gods.” Casa Cortés in Old San Juan will truly please any god with its Cortés chocolate concoctions. This welcoming café...

Anywhere breakfast is served all day usually scores in my book. At Caficultura in Old San Juan, the food is "farm to table" and is as delicious as the creative menu sounds. In addition to the mostly healthy options, the highlight is the maple...
